PSY 369 - Advanced Seminar: Black Psychology


In this course, we will examine psychological phenomena and issues that emerge in the context of African-descent peoples living in the African Diaspora. Keep in mind, this is not a “how-to” course (for laughs, see “How to Be Black” by Baratunde Thurston instead). Rather, we will examine and reflect on a variety of psychological issues through “non-Western” lenses. The purpose of this course is to critically examine psychological experience, theories, and methods from perspectives grounded in the “Black experience.” Major assignments include written reflections, student-led discussions, final project, and class participation.
